1940's TV: ''Howdy Doody'' from 1949


Published 1949


An 1940's episode of "Howdy Doody", I think this is from March 1949. This episode is complete with NBC-TV Promo, and two NBC-TV IDs. This program features music, comedy, and the infamous "re-purposed" silent film clip. All of this adds up to an entertaining half hour.

If you like Classic TV from of the 50's, I found a catalog site that makes it easy to find and watch episodes streaming from Archive.org at:

The Classic TV Channel

There are currently over 400 individual episodes of about 30 different programs, and the site is growing day by day. Check it out!

I just wonder. Were minority children, such as Afro-Americans allowed in the Peanut Gallery. I do not recall ever seeing even one.

Yes, I'm old enough to remember watching Howdy Doody every day, at least until the Mickey Mouse Club arrived in 1956. The budgets for kid shows back then must have been appallingly low. Cheap sets, ad-hoc scripts, recycled silent movies, and "cartoons" that made Clutch Cargo look like Disney by comparison. Still, we loved it, just as we loved practically anything and everything that came out of that flickering box. How we managed to stay awake for the entire half-hour show eludes me. I suppose we could have changed the channel if there was another channel to watch. No need for remotes back then.
